The beauty of Revolution is that any stack you make can become a dialog box.
Try this...

In your port, create a substack called "showList" and design how you want
the dialog box to look.  Save the substack and in the script you can use the
following command to display it like a dialog box...

modal stack "showList"

It's that easy.  This allows you to make dialog boxes that are custom
tailored to your specifications.  Enjoy!
